Should I pursue a TBS score?
If you have TBS in your area, how do you convince your doctor to order this test? They all seem to rely on the DEXA as the "gold standard" and don't want to waste time with misc tests. It's so frustrating!

The TBS is software that is used in the same machine as the DEXA test. They dud both at the same time. If you had a scan less than 2 years ago if the doctor writes "medically necessary" insurance should cover the DEXA scan. The TBS was an additional $50 to me, our if pocket. If your doc diesnt know the huge benefits of a TBS or Echolight scan I'd find a better doctor.
